Drugstore Shopping

If you have taken my coupon class, you know that drug store shopping is my FAVORITE.  Believe it or not, I don't even go every week!!!  I really depends on how much time I have or how badly I want the items that are on sale.  Remember--it all goes on sale again eventually!


Here is what I did this week--no crazy scenarios, but I still managed to score diapers, medicine, a pedicure for a Christmas party, gifts for my RACK project (candy) and stocking stuffers for my kids for just $11=tax!


Take a look:



Walgreens:
Transaction 1:
(2) Triaminic Pain Reliever/Fever Reducer 2 for $10
-(2) $3/1 Q from 12/4 SS
Total OOP= $4 with $3 Register Rewards ($.50 each!)

Transaction 2:
(6) Snicker’s Nutcrackers $39 with in-ad coupon
-(2) $1/2 Mars coupons (December All You mag and printable NLA)
I bought six so I wouldn’t get beepage –all 6 totaled only $0.34!
(3) Nestle Butterfinger Coins at 3 for $1.50
-$.45/3 December Coupon booklet
Kiss Nail art kit $7.99
-$1/1 coupon my Jedi cashier hooked me up with
-$1/1 December Coupon booklet
-Used my $3 RR from Trans 1
Total OOP:$4.05


CVS:
1 pack Luv’s diapers at $6.99          $2 ECB
1 box Candy canes at $1.27             $1.27 ECB

And after FINDING peelies on the ground PLUS getting a coupon from the coupon machine I got…..
2 bags M&M’s 2 for $5                     $1 ECB
-$1/2 peelie on ground
-$.50/2 CVS coupon from Magic Coupon Machine

-Used Black Friday ECB’s: $2.99, $.99, $4

Total OOP: $3.78                               $5 ECB total                          
My total could have been lower, but I only went with the coupons I had in my coupon wallet (and found on the ground! ha!) so the M&M’s were a last minute purchase!

In total I spent $11.83 and saved $33.48 or 65% PLUS $5 ECB left to spend next week!

My favorite drug store to shop is Shoppers Drug Mart (I am in Canada, not sure about you but I am guessing USA). A few months ago they had mega packs of Huggies diapers on for 5$ each and I had coupons for 4$ of one mega pAck Huggies. Needless to say they were only 1$ each total so I stockpiled a crapload of them! I even gave some away to other moms I knew could use them. That's another great thing about couponing it allows you to give to others when you normally could not! Keep up the great bloggin!!
